We Want Our Books by Jake Alexander
About the creators
Jake Alexander is an illustrator and author from the South of England. He finds inspiration in finding the narratives in places, the everyday and the connections between people.
When he’s not working, he spends his time absorbing useless information about Star Wars or watching reruns of Diagnosis Murder with his cat. In 2019 he won both the Macmillan Children’s Book Prize and the Creative Conscience Gold Medal.
His debut picture book We Want Our Books came out in June 2021 and later that year, he contributed to an illustrated adaption of Historian and Broadcaster David Olusoga’s book Black and British.
